Inaugural ASCS Canyon Region Schedule is Set

TULSA, Okla. (February 1, 2007) -- The schedule for the latest addition to the American Sprint Car Series fold, the ASCS Canyon Region, has been set. And the inaugural season for Arizona's top wingless troops is currently composed of 23 nights of racing action throughout the Valley of the Sun.

After a tech day on March 3, the series kicks off a week later with the first of eight events slated for Manzanita Speedway's 1/3-mile clay oval on March 10. The series will also take to Manzanita's 0x00bd-mile oval on eight occasions in 2007.

Other venues for the ASCS Canyon Region in 2007 include Tucson's USA Race Park and Central Arizona Raceway in Casa Grande.

USA Race Park will host the series on May 5 and June 9 before hosting the season championship finale on October 20.

Central Arizona Raceway will serve up the best in non-wing Sprint Car racing on May 12, June 23, July 7 and September 15.

Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix will be the site of several special events over the course of the season, including the 50-lap Wayne Weiler Salute to Indy on May 26, the Hank Arnold Memorial on June 16, the Firecracker 50 on July 4, the Anniversary Show on August 24-25, the Buddy Taylor Memorial on September 29, the much-anticipated 360 Western World Championships on October 5-6 and Parker Store Night on October 13.
